Hi Fishermen,

I have only just come across this site & find it just facinating. I have been going fishing with my dad ever since I was 3-4yrs old. Now that dad's not around, I still do fish a lot.

We had certain locations like Mudh fort (good for hamour- off the jetty) & bandra bandstand for red snapper.

I dont know what the present situation is in bombay, but from what I read around this site, it is still a happening place.

While studying in Pune, Iused to visit various places, Kahadakwasla, emperors canal, Panshet, Pashan lake etc...... I really enjoyed my fishing.

Right now, I'm in the UAE (Dubai) & although I have a lisence to fish in Dubai waters, I prefer Sharjah where we see a lot of hamour (Grouper), black spot snapper, spangled emperor, kingfish, barracuda, two bar sunbream, safi (rabbit fish), catfish etc. The gulf waters is great for various types of fish. Not to forget the angel fish with a span for @ 1 1/2 foot span (they are like pest). all this is caught from the shore (rocks protruding out into the open sea)

I use a telescopic rod for the snapper & smaller guys, while I use a 2 piece 10-30lb fiber rod for the larger chaps.
